    ???_???_???. There is not a graphics engine that doesn't have an OpenGL counterpart. Newest engines are api-recognitive, they have an OGL "or" D3D choice but without back-ends. So the graphics data are written to GLSL source "or" bytecode, or HLSL source "or" bytecode, and they have extensions to manipulate data from GLSL to HLSL or the opposite. Also they don't use things that are fast to one api and slow on the other, that's a programming merge of the two technologies. I thing there will be an engine that will not have D3D support and if i remember correctly that will be ID-Tech_6 with voxel-raytracing.

    It's "Unreal Engine 3". You can abbreviate it as UE3. "Unreal 3" would be the name of an SP FPS game (like Unreal and Unreal II).

    Not sure what that is.. Seems to happen to me occasionally, too. I suspect it has to do with the mouse-capture interfering with the window manager, but that's just a gut feeling. Alt-Tabbing away and back sometimes seems to help, but sometimes I have to ^C and restart the game. At least with a little effort, I can get the game to respond.

    Fullscreen seems to be hosed too, but it works if I set the resolution to my monitor's size, leave it windowed, and use my window manager to make it full-screen.

    This really doesn't feel like a finished Linux port. Hopefully they will release a new version that takes care of some of this stuff.

    Hey...great. Works for me too. What a weird bug. Anyhow, I've been talking to the Humble Bundle devs about the problem and I've reported the solution.

    Which means we won't see UE4 based games until 2018. Lovely.

    Fedora 14 probably never heard of my graphics card (AMD and if I would ever get there), but good to know some people can play out there
